| Untitled Dating Scam , ref:15172 I met who I thought was Thompson Davis over Facebook back in August and he claimed to be in the military in a peacekeeping mission which is why i guess we could never video chat or talk on the phone. After talking for a couple months I had started to develop feelings for him and then in October during one of our conversations he said he had something to tell me and it was that him and his colleagues had come across a consignment box in a rebel camp that had lots of USA cash in it. After a few days he stated that they divided it between them and each had 2.5 million and he wanted to have a diplomat bring his to canada and leave with me till he was done in Afghanistan in November so I complied. About a week later he says the diplomat has arrived to canada and was at airport and was going to be contacting me, and he did, his name was George Fisher. When he contacted me he stated he was held up at customs as they required a certificate from the IMF to prove it was not illegal money etc and the cost for this certificate was $700, it took me till the end of Oct to do it but I sent $750 by Western Union to a Carol Paul in New Mexico. When that was paid he would deliver box to my home. Then came another fee for storage as the box has sat in storage for over a month and would cost $900 and then they would release the box, so I paid that by western union to same name Carol Paul and then once more on Dec 13th I was asked to pay for the bullion van that was security to make sure it arrived at my door safe and that was $450 paid to same person and I paid that and got an email from this diplomat saying he would be at my door soon. A day goes by and I emailed him all the while this Thompson is chatting with me and assuring me it would all be ok and how much he loved me and couldnt wait to canada to be with me. Then the following day I get an email from george fisher saying that he got a message from Thompsons superior and that he was shot in afghanistan and now he had to wait to hear first what his instructions would be, I knew then I was scammed and so I started doing research and come to find lots out. The pictures he used were stolen and already posted on Romance dot com. I come to learn through IP checks that none of it came from afghanistan but Arkansas. I come to find out george fisher is not a diplomat but is the scammer himself, and I found Carol Paul on Facebook and contacted her only to find he had been telling her similar stuff and scamming her and using her to send my funds to him and she lost alot of money too. Then further research I learn to find out many of the fake emails he was using.Here are some names to watch out for:|
